staffTrupti PatelFranchise Owner<p><b>Hello, I am Trupti Patel, and I am the proud owner of the Primrose School of Oldsmar in Florida. Prior to joining Primrose, I spent most of my professional career working in the corporate world, but it has been my long time passion to be involved in early childhood education. I am excited to bring Primrose's <i>Balanced Learning</i> curriculum to the local community. This summer, my dream will come to fruition as we open the doors for the first time. I believe in the Primrose brand as a leader in early childhood education. It is essential that a young child has a strong foundation to build from as they develop in their educational years. Primrose assists families in developing and cultivating this foundation. Primrose sets a high standard of creativity and a fun learning experience for children.</b></p><p><b>I have seen the impact of the Primrose program in my own family with my two nieces and a nephew who graduated from the Primrose program and have gone on to become successful and responsible adolescents. I know the Primrose Balanced Learning curriculum works and I am looking forward to starting your children on this same path to success. For the last 25 years, Primrose has shaped leaders within communities across America. We are delighted to bring this proven model to your community and have an amazing staff and support system to ensure your children receive the highest quality education through Primrose's child-initiated, teacher-directed curriculum. I am thrilled to bring this exclusive <i>Balanced Learning</i> Curriculum to the Oldsmar community and I look forward to meeting you and your children!</b></p>
